Make it work! Project Runway returns while Celebrity Circus crowns a winner.
Another round of auditions on “America’s Got Talent” and I’m bored. I don’t know why they just don’t turn this into a weekly talent show, a la “The Gong Show” and be done with it. At this point, they’ve put so many people through to Vegas it’s ridiculous. And I’m really tired of the lame acts looking for their 15 minutes of fame.
What I did enjoy last night was TLC’s docudrama on Ashley Paige. I’ve seen this designer pop up on some other reality show (one of the modeling ones, I imagine) and I always thought she was a huge success. Turns out she’s one hot designer but she doesn’t have the money to make her clothes in bulk so she’s in big trouble. Full of quirky personalities, as most of these shows are, I’m hooked.
